FSA publishes consumer information on ultra-processed foods


May 14, 2024

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has published consumer information in relation to the current science and evidence around ultra-processed food and the FSA’s role.

The government’s advice is for consumers to try to follow a healthy diet. The "Eatwell Guide" sets out what a healthy, balanced diet looks like – one that limits saturated fat, salt and sugar, and includes plenty of fruit and vegetables, fibre and protein (including oily fish and pulses). It also shows how much of what we eat overall should come from each food group.

Giving evidence at the House of Lords Committee on Food, Diet and Obesity on 9 May, Professor Robin May, Chief Scientific Advisor at the FSA spoke about the importance of clear information for consumers.
